Yes! He did it. Thanks Mr. President. -- Bush commutes sentences of former US border agents
In his final acts of clemency, President George W. Bush on Monday commuted the [more than 10-year] prison sentences of two former U.S. Border Patrol agents whose convictions for shooting a Mexican drug dealer ignited fierce debate about illegal immigration.
Rancor over their convictions, sentencing and firings has simmered ever since the shooting occurred in 2005.
Nearly the entire bipartisan congressional delegation from Texas and other lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle pleaded with Bush to grant them clemency.
